FOTD Request: Orange and Purple

The lovely Jasmine (owner of High Voltage Cosmetics) asked me to do a combo of orange and purple on Twitter one night... I had a few extra minutes one morning and decided to give it a go. I liked it, it was REALLY refreshing to do something bright-ish and interesting as I had been so boring for weeks. I think I should have used a warmer toned purple lipstick, but I feel like it would have been more berry instead of purple then. Oh well, I liked it and got a lot of compliments at work (and at the Chanel counter, which was surprising)

Speaking of which, I went by and tried the Vitalumiere Aqua. WHY?! It's fantastic, I'll admit it. My skin looks so nice and it actually matches very well, which is rare for me. I just don't think it's worth $56. I came home with two samples so I'll post a review soon.

As a note about the pictures, I did flash and non flash because flash was muddling the colors HORRIBLY. My camera hates oranges for some reason. The flash are the top photos and you'll tell when it switches to non flash... looks much better lol! (and more color accurate)
